I grew up with John in San Margherita and spent many happy times at the golf course, McDonald’s, Wendy’s and our favorite, MCL. I’m sorry I will miss the funeral. John was a very good friend and I will miss him very much.

Steve ... Thinking of you as I read the DISPATCH & learn of the loss of your dear Dad. The older we get, the harder it gets to lose those we love, & it never goes away. Please know that I am fondly thinking of you, & will pray for your dear Dad & you. You have undoubtedly made him so proud through the years, so you can live with no regrets. I am happy for you that you had him for so long. He raised a good son indeed. If I lived in Columbus, I would have come to pay my respects. Love & Hugs Janet Gavin White - Melbourne, Florida
